From the Meadow

Selected and New Poems

There is something shining and pure—a radiant clarity, a luminous stillness—at the heart of Peter Everwine's beautiful, mysterious, and necessary work.
Edward Hirsch

For nearly five decades, readers have been enthralled and enchanted by Peter Everwine’s calmly dazzling poems. He’s never been a writer clearly aligned with any single school or style, yet adherents of all schools and styles admire his graceful turns of phrase and intense vision. From the Meadow features selections from four previous collections, along with a group of new works. The poems, which include Everwine’s deft translations from Hebrew and interpretations from Nahuatl, vibrate with the intensity of small truths distilled to their very essences.
